Build A Bunny This Easter At Eastgate

Johannesburg, 4 April 2023: As the Easter holiday approaches, Eastgate Shopping Centre is excited to welcome shoppers for a fun-filled celebration that promises to delight the entire family. For the first time, the centre will host a Build-a-Bunny workshop, an experiential activation like never before, in partnership with Toy Kingdom and Build-a-Bear Workshop.

From 5 to 10 April, customers can visit the Strelitzia Court to select their Easter plushie of choice and enjoy the creative process of building their very own stuffed bunny. This multi-sensory experience enables one to select scents, sounds, clothing, accessories, fluff and more, to craft an entirely unique bunny, from beginning to end. It’s an imaginary delight that enables one to enjoy the journey of creating the Easter bunny of dreams.

In addition, the centre’s Easter activities will feature themed arts and crafts from participating tenants such as PNA, Cricut, and Yokico, who will each provide unique ways for our customers to express their creative side.

For those that enjoy a more adrenalin filled experience, Eastgate houses South Africa’s biggest indoor go-kart track, in the undercover parking. The IndyKart track offers 475 metres of pulse-racing track to zoom around, and no less than thirteen corners of various technical levels in fourteen brand-new Sodi RT8 Karts. The track is open to children from the age of nine years old or those with a minimum height of 1,4 metres.

Or, for those who prefer a more laid-back activity, the centre’s Ster-Kinekor, voted Best Cinema Complex in the 2022 Best of Joburg Awards, features the newest and best movies in its cinema multiplex. With iMax, Cine Prestige and 3D theatres, this is movie viewing at its best.

Hungry tummies will find an array of restaurants and fast-food outlets, both inside and on the popular outdoor piazza to satisfy any craving. With over 200 leading local and global brands, shopping for the perfect Easter gifts will be easy with everything under one roof.

To top it all off, Eastgate Shopping Centre will be hosting egg-citing Easter-themed competitions on their social media platforms. Customers who hop over to their Facebook and or Instagram feeds could walk away with some incredible prizes.

“We are looking forward to welcoming families to Eastgate this Easter,” said Saadiyah Khan, general manager for Eastgate Shopping Centre. “Our Build-a-Bunny workshop is a delightful way to celebrate the season, and we have plenty of other enthralling activities to keep everyone entertained.”
